Trivia

  • Due to hardware limitations, local play on the Nintendo Switch edition is limited to 8 players.
  • When Among Us was first released to the Nintendo Switch, The Airship was accidentally released and players could play the map early. Players were also able to select the 13 hats included in The Airship skin bundle. However, this was later fixed.
  • When skins were initially added to the Nintendo Switch, players were once again able to select the 13 hats included in The Airship skin bundle. They were also able to select the 3 skins included in the bundle. This was patched shortly after.
  • For the first 4 updates after launch, updates were named by increasing the number at the end of the version by one, not by listing the submission date.
  • The cursor has existed in-game in various locations throughout the Nintendo Switch Edition's lifespan. In most cases, after being removed, it appears in another location.
  • From 7/21 10 AM PT—7/27, 11:59 PM PT, the full version of Among Us was available for Nintendo Switch Online members to try.[3]
